- GULLIVERS TRAVELS - A Graphic Novel
DetailsLemuel Gulliver always dreamed of travelling the world. But when a violent storm claims his ship and casts him adrift among uncharted lands, he is taken to places that he could not even dream of. Travelling to the nation of Lilliput, where the inhabitants measure just centimetres tall, and to Brobdingnag, where they tower into the sky like giants, Gulliver voyages to an island floating above the clouds, visits a race of immortals, and finds himself stranded in a land ruled by horses. Face to face with warring armies and power-hungry kings, each new journey makes Gulliver more desperate to find a way back home. But once he discovers the truth about his own land and himself, returning home becomes the last thing he desires. Written by world-renowned satirist Jonathan Swift, Gulliver’s Travels is one of the most gripping and poignant adventures ever told.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Born on November 30, 1667 in Dublin, Jonathan Swift began writing essays and political pamphlets anonymously or under pseudonyms. His first major work, A Tale of a Tub, was published in 1704. Swift addressed the most prominent social, political, and religious issues of the time through his biting satirical essays and novels. Two of his most famous works are Gulliver's Travels and A Modest Proposal. He died in 1745, and is still considered to be one of the greatest satirists of all time.ADAPTATION BY: Lewis Aaron Helfand is one of Campfire’s most prolific writers, having scripted many of our biographies, classics and original titles. Some of his most popular works include the award winning Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa: Angel of the Slums and Abraham Lincoln: From the Log Cabin… Lewis has been interested in cartoons, animation, and comics from a young age, and by the age of twelve, had turned to writing in that medium as an amateur. His career, however, was a far cry from his passion. At the age of twenty-four, Lewis had been eidting phonebooks for a year and a half and felt no closer to his lifelong goal of writing comic books. So, one day he decided to quit his job. Lewis then spent the next two months working day and night to write and draw his first independent comic book. Wasted Minute- it tells the story of the world without crime where superheroes are forced to work regular jobs. To cover the cost of self-publishing, he began wroking odd jobs in offices and restaurants, and started exhibiting his book at local comic book conventions. With the first issue received well, he was soon collaborating with other artists, and released four more issues over the next few years. Outside the field of comics, Lewis works as a freelance writer and reporter for a number of US Print, and online publications. He has covered everything from sports and travel to politics and culture for magazines such as Renaissance, American Health And Fitness, and Computer Bits.ABOUT THE ARTIST: Having received professional training from the N S Dhammi Art Group, Vinod is a highly experienced artist who has created more than 400 comics for the Indian comics industry.
